We are women who want to run races and compete as a team in the PAUSATF Series of races in northern California! We'll do road races from 5K to marathons, track meets from 400m to 5000m, and cross country. We call ourselves the Bay Area Women's Racing Federation - BAWRF for short.

If you are already a fast racer, we want you to help us get points and see your name on the roster. If you are interested but don't think you are fast we need you to help us qualify as a team. Well help you learn how to get faster.

Our initial recruiting focus will be 40 and up. We especially want women over 60! However, all ages are welcome to check us out. We are new, just forming and practices will occur, somewhat randomly, throughout the Bay Area when members would like to invite the rest of us to their neighborhood.

As Coach of Go WOW Team I invite you to run with us at any of our workouts or, if you like, invite our BAWRF Members to run with you or your run team.

You have no obligation to train with us, just be there for the races!

You also do not have to run in every race. That said, we must meet a minimum number of team members in each age division to qualify as a team. Thus, the more members we have, the less races we HAVE to RUN and still be able to qualify for the points we accrue by participating in every race.

The races are part of the USATF Club Series.  Here is a link to the 2013 races in the PAUSATF Road Racing Series. http://pausatf.org/data/2013/RRSchedule2013.html

Ready to rock and roll? Please join us now!


Note: there is a one time membership fee for BAWRF of $75 in addition to the annual USATF membership fee. Your BAWRF Membership pays for your shirt and other team incidentals.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
